Scotty McCreery Strong Sales give Clear As Day Gold Status

Strong sales give Scotty's 'Clear As Day' album gold status

Read more:

As he prepares for Thursday morning's appearance in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Scotty McCreery has received some good news: the "American Idol" winner's first CD has gone gold.

“Clear As Day” has sold more than 500,000 copies in the less than two months since its Oct. 4 release.

“It’s a huge thing,” Scotty said this afternoon from New York, where he'll be riding a float and singing in the parade. "Now we're shooting for platinum."

A platinum single or album has sold at least 1 million copies.

Most Thanksgivings, Scotty and his immediate family – dad, Mike; mom, Judy; and sister, Ashley – are either with his paternal grandparents in Pinehurst or his maternal grandmother in Elizabeth City.

But the McCreerys will start Thursday in the Big Apple. Scotty will be riding on the “Home Baked Goodness” float, from Morton Salt, which features a stove overflowing with holiday goodies. When the parade through Manhattan reaches the Macy’s flagship store at 34th Street, Scotty will sing a shortened version of his latest hit, “The Trouble With Girls.”

The parade airs on NBC starting at 9 a.m. Thursday. In addition to Scotty, other scheduled appearances include Cee Lo Green, Avril Lavigne, Mary J. Blige and the Broadway casts of “Sister Act” and “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” Scotty says his appearance should be about 10:30.

After that, the McCreerys will fly to Atlanta, where Scotty will be featured Thursday night at the annual Macy’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Lenox Square.

Only after that, back at the hotel, will the McCreerys get their Thanksgiving dinner.

Scotty McCreery Roughstock Chart News

With David Nail’s The Sound of A Million Dreams being the major new release of the week, chances were good that one of the top albums from the past few weeks would remain or return to #1 on the chart and that’s exactly what happened when Scotty McCreery’s album returned to #1 and has officially scanned gold this week and looks to be well on his way to a Platinum album certification for Clear As Day, particularly with the album being one of many Doorbuster CDs on Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving in the USA).

Scotty McCreery will be part of tomorrow's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, but you can bet he's also thankful for his album sales this week. Last week's 33,000 sales of Clear as Day put Scotty's album just under 500,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. By now, it will have easily passed that mark.
Scotty McCreery, Clear as Day (33,000 weekly, -21%, 500,000 total) (#13 Billboard 200)
Kelly Clarkson, Stronger (27,000, -14%, 272,000) (#22 BB200)
Mandisa, What If We Were Real (4,000, -12%, 96,000) (#159 BB200)
Carrie Underwood, Play On (2,000, -22%, 2.049 million)

Scotty McCreery has something to be extra thankful for this year. The 18-year-old ‘American Idol’-winner-turned-country-superstar announced on Wednesday, Nov. 23, that his debut album, ‘Clear as Day,’ has reached gold status.
The album, which made its entrance on Oct. 4, has sold more than 500,000 copies — 197,000 in the first week alone. The high sales gave McCreery his first No. 1 and first gold album, which is nothing to scoff at for a young newcomer.
The singer tweeted this morning, “well, we got to the today show too late to see biebs.. haha. bout to head up to do the interview tho. yall tune in for some big news on CAD!” . He was joking that he wanted to catch a glimpse ofJustin Bieber while visiting the ‘Today’ show this morning. An hour later, McCreery made the big reveal to his followers who missed his appearance, saying, “a lot of yall found out early but I wanted to wait till the today show to announce it! Clear As Day went GOLD! thank yall sooo much!”
McCreery will continue to show his gratitude on Thursday, when he appears in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade alongside Rodney AtkinsCee Lo GreenAvril Lavigne and more. “I’ve always watched it every year, and now they invited me to be in it. It will be surreal and cold!” the rising star told Taste of Country of the honor. “They have me on a float. I’ll be singing and it’s just kind of a nice, simple thing. It’ll just be cool to be up there and see everybody out there.”

Picture showing CAD is certified Gold

Edit by Hailey: Scotty McCreery album is "Gold" I believe the label ships out a certain amount of CD's, but if they don't sell, they are then bought back. Apparently, Scotty is having no problem selling them, so therefore it's been certified as GOLD! Congrats Scotty!!!!!!
